Karachi: 31st October 2019 – K-Electric (KE) recently organised a Customer Facilitation Camp in Babar Market area of Landhi, where residents could conveniently apply for New Connections, redress their complaints and avail payment solutions. In addition to this, an awareness session was also held where the safety hazards of power-theft through illegal kundas were highlighted and residents received free medical treatment at a health camp organized in collaboration with Layton Rehmatullah Benevolent Trust.

We are committed to serving this city and investing in its growth and prosperity; our presence in Landhi today is a testament of our efforts to get closer to customers by serving them at their doorsteps.”
